    Pro-tip for terraforming so you're not suffering. Just terraform the area around the place you're porting in. Saves more time, saves more lives.


    All the stuff that koko usually says \o/

    America.

    Birb and I were in charge of this one! During the building meeting, Nick showed his builds for the Halls of Sun and Moon in the Lunar Capital. They are essentially identical except for some color changes, but are both fairly sizable builds.We also discussed the fact that most builds in the Lunar Capital are due for a size change, one way or another.

    After that, we worked on the Kappa Village caves, raising the ceiling of the top floor to make it less cramped vertically, and finally (mostly) finished terraforming it altogether; QSC and I have already begun to plot out where houses in the residential part of the Kappa village are going to go.

    Soon :tm: we will have several plots for these houses topside for people (*cough* temps *cough*) to design the interiors for these houses; only small portions of these houses are visible from the outside, making the focus of these builds be towards the interiors, rather than the exteriors. Don't worry too much about the houses being too big in terms of length(???) as these are being built into the cave walls and have lots of space to work with. However, each plot will have a (relatively) much smaller height limit and an even smaller width limit. If this proves to be too bad to work with, we can talk about replotting the houses.



    Dear Katrix,

    ur doing great and we believe in you
    do a big good

    love, birb and purp <3


    Next building meeting is on July 18th, 2020 4PM EST.

      During the days between the last building meeting and this one, the Kappa Village building/planning continued. As well as some Lunar Capital planning.

      In this building meeting Iku, Wriggle, and Purp showed their progress of the Kappa Village. One of the biggest things they needed help deciding was whether or not the Village should have a set color palette. The major consensus was that it did need one, so we worked on making a color palette. We also were shown the plots of certain builds inside the Kappa Village Cage. However it was then decided that the Kappa Village needed more room, so Purp used voxel to open the cave up some more. Due to that there was more terraforming work that needed to be done.

      In the meantime Redleaf and I did some work on the 3 unfinished rooms in Eientei. I worked on the bathroom and Redleaf worked on and completed the "washitsu" room. He then made his way to the first floor stair room and continued work. For Eientei there's just 2 rooms left. After that I'll just fill in the hallways with some stuff here and there just so they don't stay completely empty.

      This meetings was more of a build and chill kind of meeting, which is honestly the best for terraforming. We went for about 3 hours before we called it a day.

      List of builds confirmed for the trailer:
      • Hakurei Shrine (of course)
      • Bits of the Forest of Magic
      • Marisa/Alice/Kourindou
      • The Human Village
      • The SDM
      • Voile's Hisoutensoku Fighting Stage
      • Aki Farm
      • Youkai Mountain
      • The Toad Pond
      • ShikiEiki's Court
      • Eientei
      • Ancient City
      • Spring Path
      • Canal of Willows
      • The Floor of Chireiden (lol)


      Parts of the trailer has been filmed. Thank you for trusting me bc it finally happend. Katrix now has to do his thing, and we have to make sure we have everything for the credits. So in the meantime wait warmly. \o/

      Next building meeting is on August 1st, 2020 4PM EST.

        During the days between the last building meeting and this one, the Kappa Village building/planning continued. As well as some more Lunar Capital planning.

        In this building meeting we went back to the Kappa Village to discuss what exactly changed, and which part to focus on. It was decided that we would make residential housing for the Village for this meeting. There was Tennocon (a warframe thing) that was happening during the meeting, so some participants left temporarily to attend that. Despite that we continued work on the Kappa Village.

        After Tennocon ended the members came back and we all continued working on residential houses for Kappa Village. Until we eventually stopped.

        July was a bit of a hard month for people. No motivation, being busy with irl things, the server being down for quite a bit. So ultimately not much was done during this month. Though this building meeting started August off pretty well, everyone chipped in to make a house for the Village. and now the top part of the Kappa Village is looking a lot more filled in than it looked before. This building meeting went on longer than usual as well (We started at 4pm and went until 9pm). Let's keep this energy up for the rest of August!

        List of builds confirmed for the trailer:
        • Hakurei Shrine (of course)
        • Bits of the Forest of Magic

          During the days between the last building meeting and this one, the Kappa Village building/planning continued. Several homes that we made last building meeting were furnished. And designs for a path was made.

          In this building meeting we went back to the Kappa Village to discus which path designs we would use. The 4 paths were designed by Ennette. One path had Quartz and Diorite. One was Red/Regular Nether Brick. One was Dark/Regular/Brick Prismarine. And the final design which we ended up using was made out of Granite and Bricks.

          Once we decided on which path would be used We terraformed the marked area for the paths and started building them. We also discussed the type of lighting that should be used. And it was decided that modern-esque street lamps would fit the Kappa quite well.

          With all that I can say that the top half of Kappa Village is making good progress. We built for 3 hours until we eventually got distracted, and so ended that 74th building meeting.

          And now a message from Purp (one of the leads of Kappa Village):

          "There are buildings in the kappa village that still need interiors. ill try to be on to help do additional builds to help continue to fill in space and flesh out the village part. The vendors near the entrance still need to be built (except for one), and the parks still need to be made. These are all small builds, and are excellent if you want to contribute but you don't have a lot of time or energy to do so. Don't feel like you have to do all of it at once. Even filling in 1 building or working on 1 plot is enough. Biting off more than you can chew for something like this will only be detrimental in the long run."

          List of builds confirmed for the trailer:
          • Hakurei Shrine (of course)
          • Bits of the Forest of Magic

            During the days between the last building meeting and this one, the Kappa Village building/planning continued. Last Saturday we had an impromptu building bash, where we did the opposite of what purp wanted worked on the lower half of the village, which includes larger houses, more shops, factories, and an entrance to the mines.

            In this building meeting we went back to the Kappa Village to discuss how we would light up the ceiling of the cave. Right now the way it is currently lit up is just a simple sea lantern in the stalactites, which is just a temporary way of lighting it up. Purp had the idea of having crystals hanging from the ceiling to light it up, but a lot of people agreed that the Kappa Village has the village look but not the "touhou" kappa touch. Touhou Kappa meaning how technologically advanced the Kappas are.

            During the building bash I had an idea of having more modern lighting on the ceiling, I was going to make/show an example but then I lost internet. But I made/showed examples in this building meeting. I got the inspiration from cyber punk aesthetic, the idea is that the ceiling lights are attached to the stalactites on the ceiling, and there would be wiring connecting all the lights. Though not all the stalactites will have lighting.

            Examples and inspo can be seen in the links below:

            https://media.discordapp.net/attachm...996&height=560


            We all gave ideas and thoughts on different type of lighting that could be used for areas. For example Karu made fluorescent lighting with end rods for the factories. We also added pipes with running water that connects to the lake at the bottom of the village. I remember asking Purp to add more water to the village but I should have said more running water since the Kappas in touhou use water to power their things.

            Despite all of that being done, this building meeting wasn't as long as the others since 3/4 of the leads for the build were busy. So this meeting was about 2 hours long today. And with that done the 75th building meeting came to an end.

            List of builds confirmed for the trailer:
            • Hakurei Shrine (of course)

              During the days between the last building meeting and this one, the Kappa Village building/planning continued. More of the larger homes in the lower part of the village were furnished and finished. As well as the warehouses in the factory area.

              In this meeting the people who worked on Kappa Village continued working on the larger homes. From making floorplans to furnishing. Just more of the same Kappa Village work. Meanwhile Wriggle worked on the Factory area some more.

              With all of that Karu and I headed back to Eientei to finished Kaguya's bathroom. Kaguya's bathroom originally looked like an onsen and several building meetings ago I re-made it to resemble something that was made for one person.

              Other than that there's not much to really summarized, we just built for 2 hours until we got distracted or hungry.

                During the days between the last building meeting and this one, the Kappa Village building/planning continued. Mystia's house was made by Ennette, and we discussed (in the Gensokyo Project room on YC's discord) whether or not her house should be something similar to a Baba Yaga's home or whether it should be another tree house. In the end it was decided that Ennette should take inspiration from both.

                This building meeting was more of the same of the last meeting. Redleaf and Purp continued work on Kappa Village. Redleaf worked on his house he was working on prior. The house is located at bottom half of Kappa Village. I can't say I know much of what was happening in KV due to me working on another build. But I can say for sure there wasn't any super big changes to the build.

                Meanwhile Ennette, Birb, and I continued work on Eientei. I ended up moving Kaguya's water closet to the awkward empty spot next to her bathroom. And turned the area that used to be her water closet into another part of the hallway. So far the last that needs to be done with Eientei is furnishing the hallways. This will be a little tricky since furniture in the Heian era was moved around, there wasn't really any set rooms. I believe we will over come this crutch however. After all the hallways are furnished I'll most likely go from room to room editing small things.

                Other than that I mentioned to the temps that either the next saturday or next build meeting, we can decorate Gensokyo into something Halloween/Fall themed. It won't be as big as the work we do for Christmas but it'll still be fun. I'll also be trying to see if I can get the Gmod Murder Event in minecraft up and running again.

                But with that being said there's nothing left to really mention for this building meeting. More of the same!

                  During the days between the last building meeting and this one, the Kappa Village building/planning continued and Kasen's Mansion/Dojo was created by Nick with the help of Cyros.

                  In today's building meeting we started off by visiting Kasen's Mansion/Dojo Nick and Cyros made. So far only the exterior has been made for it. And most of the references come from Wild and Horned Hermit.

                  We also went to Ennette's Mystia house. In the last summary I spoke about our discussion about in. Well in this build meeting we actually went to check out any more progress on it. In the end we decided that since it'll be in a forest it just needs some leaves/vines on the outside and it'll be good to go for Gensokyo.

                  With the new things that were worked on during the break we went back to working on Gensokyo. As per usual the houses in the lower section of Kappa Village was worked on by Purp. Eientei was also worked on. With the bathrooms done there Karu and I finally went back to working on the empty hallways. And Ennette and Birb ended up working on Kutaka's home.

                  Honestly with that being said there's nothing left to really mention for this building meeting. More of the same!

                    During the days between the last building meeting and this one, the Kappa Village building/planning continued, Kasen's Mansion/Dojo was also worked on!

                    Today's building meeting had lower turnout since people was busy, but the small few of us who attended still built. With the leads of the KV being unable to attend we continued work on Eientei. Some of the things we did was furnish the long hallways, add more things to any empty rooms. So far Eientei remains 90% done. After we're done with the main building we'll move on to constructing the hallway that leads to the moon (stage 6 of IN). Since the design made for the hallway is very different compared to the design of the rest of the mansion, we'll have to come up with a way to properly transition the 2 different styles.

                    Honestly with that being said there's nothing left to really mention for this building meeting. More of the same!

                      Summary for the 80th Gensokyo v3 Building Meeting 11/21/2020:
                      *ctrl+c* *ctrl+v*
                      Communication is key, during the breaks we have between these meetings talk to others about projects, work on things etc. etc.
                      Pro-tip for terraforming so you're not suffering. Just terraform the area around the place you're porting in. Saves more time, saves more lives.


                      During the days between the last building meeting and this one, the Kappa Village building/planning continued, Kutaka's house was also redesigned a bit! Mystia's home is also completely finished!

                      Today's building meeting had lower turnout since people was busy (again), but the small few of us who attended still built. With the leads of the KV being unable to attend we continued work on Eientei. Some of the things we did was furnish the long hallways on the first and second floor. Specifically we worked on the long back hallway on the first floor, the hallway outside of Tewi's and Reisen's rooms, and the Hallway leading to Kaguya's room. So far I would say Eientei remains 99.8% done and should be done by the next building meeting. The last things left is updating a couple of rooms that didn't age well. Once we do that I'll update the Eientei that is currently ported in Neo Gensokyo since that one still has empty rooms.

                      After we're done with the main building we'll move on to constructing the hallway that leads to the moon (stage 6 of IN). Since the design made for the hallway is very different compared to the design of the rest of the mansion, we'll have to come up with a way to properly transition the 2 different styles.

                      After working on Eientei Benji called it quits and Ennette and I discussed the design of Kutaka's home. So far more windows will be added, and the floor was changed.

                      Honestly with that being said there's nothing left to really mention for this building meeting. More of the same!
